is the means of moving gases from a base pressure (the 'suction
pressure') to a higher pressure (the 'discharge pressure'). To
determine your compression requirements, you must consider the suction
pressure and the discharge pressure as well as your desired flow of gas:
pressure (PSIG, or pounds square
of gas (MCFD, or million cubic
feet per day)
Quick Chart to determine your
approximate horsepower and stages required to change the suction pressure to the discharge pressure per million cubic foot.
For low volume
applications (i.e., 10 to 15 horsepower), review our
E-Pak compressor packages. They are designed for trouble-free
performance, ease of installation, and portability.
We offer custom
compression solutions for larger volume applications. For a more precise
